tsukemen-senmon Kubota kita-ten
|つけ麺専門 久保田 北店|
We went for a visit to tsukemen-senmon Kubota, located a short distance from Marutamachi street up the north-south Kyoto road Kawaramachi street and a little east of Kyoto Gyoen. Newly opened by a famous ramen shop inside Kyoto, it is a ramen shop specializing in tsukemen ramen, just as the name suggests. "Tsukemen" is a type of ramen where the noodles and soup served separately, and you dip the noodles in the soup as you eat them like "Zarusoba", which gives the dish a unique appeal that is different from the usual ramen. In recent years the popularity of "Tsukemen" has been growing, not just in Kyoto but all over Japan.
Today I had the homemade Tantan. It should be easy to imagine if you picture the soup that comes with the dish called Tantanmen noodles(Szechuan Style Sesame Hot Noodles). The soup is not that spicy and it has a nice sesame flavor.
The noodles, straight and slightly thick, are quite filling. The sesame flavor that goes so well with the rich soup makes it even better.
Having opened in 2009, the interior is relatively clean. The restaurant filled up as soon as it opened, and people were waiting in line. There seemed to be a few more male customers? But ladies should have no problem going to this restaurant either.
